After the controversy following the exchange between Benzema and Mendy at half-time in the Champions League match against Mönchengladbach, Vinicius returned to this episode in an interview.
Last October, a discussion between Karim Benzema and his teammate, Ferland mendy, was filmed in the corridors of the Borussia Park locker room at half-time in the Champions League match between Mönchengladbach and Real Madrid (2-2). In the images, we could see the tricolor striker telling the left side not to make any more passes to Vinicius : ” He does what he wants. Brother, don’t play with it! My mother’s life. He plays against us », Had launched Benzema. This affair had obviously made the cabbage fat and risked to crystallize the relations between players.

However, this episode doesn’t seem to have done too much damage. In an interview with TNT Sports, the young Brazilian of 20, calmed the game on this controversy. Vinicius recalled the welcome he had received from the former Lyon player, as well as their links: “ Our relationship has never changed and never will be. Benzema is one of the players who defended me here, he did everything to help me when nobody knew me and for the last two and a half years. People on the outside don’t know what really happened. At Real Madrid, the smallest things explode out of proportion in the media “, Explained the winger.
Something to reassure Real Madrid supporters, before the meeting against theAtalanta Bergamo in the knockout stages of the Champions League.
